Proud of Our Little Pumpkins!

Pumpkin Presentation
Our classroom was filled with excitement and pride as Kindergarten wrapped up their fun-filled pumpkin unit. Students invited family and friends to our backyard to check out our pumpkin predictions, pumpkin artwork, pumpkin fact books, as well as the decomposing pumpkin we have been observing. Students capped off the celebration by sharing their pumpkin facts and performing their very informative and exciting Pumpkin Play for a full audience. Kindergarteners were prepared, energetic, and brave. We are so proud of our little pumpkins!

Grateful Hearts
Students kicked off their next writing unit this week by considering all of the things in their life that they are grateful for. Kindergarteners started by making lists of the things that mean the most to them and then took on the challenge of really considering why they are grateful for these things. Gratitude Writing is one of our favorite writing units, as students will be publishing this writing into Gratitude Books, in which they will write and illustrate all of the things they appreciate most!

Halloween Carnival
Kindergarteners were so excited to celebrate the spooky holiday this week by wearing costumes and gathering in our backyard for a Halloween Carnival organized by the Middle School students! We were so excited to celebrate with our whole school, checking out their costumes, and playing games alongside them. Kindergarteners had so much fun as they bounced around from game to game, greeting all of their older friends in school. Our day wrapped up with some exciting costume awards as Kindergarteners celebrated all of our school’s winners.
